Alexanders Ragtime Band Trailer
Worth watching for the Ethel Merman numbers especaily Heatwave, the Fox studio orchestra exells on this one, the finale with Alice Faye is magic again the fox studio orchestra and chorus on fine form, the soundtracks were issed on CD a few years back and many of the numbers featured in the film don't need the visual part on screen at all, they stand on their own.

Come on and hear
Pretty standard trailer, nothing really worth mentioning.. Except for the fact that ARB is one of my favorite old time songs, so its great that it got its own movie lol. It also has 28 (!!) Irving Berlin songs! AND Tyrone Power! AND (a thin) Ethel Merman! Its not a bad trailer.. Just not the best.

If You Want to Hear the Swanee River Played in Ragtime...
Trailer for a bouncy 40s musical of the type they donÂt make anymore. This is pretty ordinary, but it has some nostalgia value.
Ratings: Camp/ Humor Value: **. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
